"A Case for Developing Spiritual Intelligence in Leaders through Equine" 

"A Case for Developing Spiritual Intelligence in Leaders through Equine"  | Leadership and Spirituality | Scoop.it

 

Unpredictable circumstances, growing stresses in an ever-increasing global market, and ubiquitous ennui have left organizations and today’s leaders in government, industry, and academia without the necessary tools to transition to change in a principled manner.

 

The authors explain that the development and maintenance of genuine leadership skills — adaptive to the dictates of the modern world — must be borne from one’s inner self, a retreat to spirituality.

 

One available method of achieving this is through Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning (EFEL), a technique whereby leaders develop critical management skills by working with horses...

Leading from a values based place is essential. Too often though, we think of values as placing a value on something. In truth, values (in French valoir) is a place of strength and courage to act and speak properly.

Sounds like a great place to start students understanding what their emotional intelligence is.  Need to convince students that emotional intelligence makes a difference.

What a quote:

"Your ability to concentrate on the work you're doing or your schoolwork, and to put off looking at that text or playing that video game until after you're done ... how good you are at that in childhood turns out to be a stronger predictor of your financial success in adulthood than either your IQ or the wealth of the family you grew up in,"

Another great quote:

When an emotionally intelligent person experiences a failure or setback, he or she is able to bounce back quickly. This is in part because of the ability to mindfully experience negative emotions without letting them get out of control, which provides a higher degree of resilience.

What can Western leaders learn from Africa?

Leontine van Hooft explains the Power of African thinking, Ubuntu and unifying leadership. Western leaders can learn from Africa.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:
I have been fortunate and have spent time with people from different cultures, including African. Ubuntu is seeing the other person as a person and taking time to acknowledge their presence. As one person from Africa told me, when they are in North America, they find it difficult not to get caught up in the rush of life.

What if we focused on long-term relationships and sustainability? This is about Ubuntu and unifying leadership. Consider the recent American elections. It was about dividing and remains so, rather than being about unifying. The closet we come to this is servant-leadership and we avoid it, because it is hard work.

This looks like a book that would be very useful for my dissertaton work. We don't often set aside time for the soul in our work. It is the essence of our work and where we find voice.
